Tw is very good, despite android fan boys constantly bashing it.
Tw for s1 and s2 wasn't that great but for s3 it's quite nice.
Well if you Google how to root s3, I'm sure you'll come across a few guides from myself wink.gif!

"Hmm, that's a huge range, and depends on what your listening preferences are--Beyer DT880s are most neutral, Sennheiser HD600s sometimes clock in at $300, the Mad Dog Fostex RP50 mods are very nice (probably my choice here), Grado SR325s are bright but very revealing..."

To me, the bass sounded nearly identical, I didn't spent a whole lot of time listening to the bass though. The mids on the DT770s sound way more full and "meatier". The M50's mids sounded rather thin. The highs were what put me off the M50s. They were very harsh, and quite sibilant in many of my songs, and overpowered the mids (maybe that's why they sounded thin to me?). The DT770s are nowhere near as sibilant, much smoother highs that fit much better into the spectrum without having too much presence. I couldn't listen to many cymbal-heavy songs on the M50s without discomfort.

For reference, these are a couple of the songs I used to compare:

I'm going to give those a listen later. I have a friend looking for some headphones and the only thing that I can really currently let him use as an example are my DT 770s.

I actually didn't mind TW on my S2 Skyrocket. I've just found myself spoiled so much by Vanilla/Semi-Vanilla Android 4.0+.

That's awesome. I love the look of the M&M and was considering. Especially since it doesn't cost me a ridiculous price.

Cool beans- the S3 IMO is the best android phone out there in the market, that caters for everyone.
Sure pure android is great - but they usually don't talk about battery life and usability for your average customer.

Hardware of the S3 is hard to beat - even know.

just bought a S3 and need some new headphones I'd go with a £50ish budget. Any recommendations ?

Just making sure, when you say headphones you are talking about actual headphones and not IEM's correct?

Any opinions on Xonar STX as a DAC for higher end headphones such as HE-500's? Is it something that would be good or could I spend $300 on an external DAC and have it be a lot better.

That's a good question lol - loads of pepople use headphones, when they mean earphones.

Earphones wise: Sony Ex510's & klipsch S4 - great all-rounders - around £40-60
PS. you should describe what music you listen to, and what you like/dislike in earphones etc etc

Crap in-earphones?
LOL - I guess those PFE232's are crap then wink.gif

As for your headphone thing - I can't really help I'm not a headphone person.
But XB500's I know are good for bass thumb.gif
